SquirrelsInjured/Orphaned Wildlife

The Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley (WCSV) provides care for sick and injured wildlife in Santa Clara County. SVACA partners with the WCSV and transports injured or sick animals directly to them.

If you are holding wildlife that is injured or in need of help please take the animal directly to the WCSV during their business hours if it is safe for you to do so. If it is not safe for you to transport the animal yourself, please call our office and one of our staff will arrange to collect the animal from you.

The WCSV is located at 3027 Penitencia Creek Road in San Jose, CA 95132.
